Also people say "lasy year was last year", well what do you expect the GM and coaches to go off of. College kids are graded by their years in college, free agents years at various teams. You better sign consistent and draft consistent players, or you mind as well be packing your bags and get your Pink Slip. I rather take a proven commodity, like a Dawson, and Boldin over a unproven like Hopkins/Sturgis, and other WRs in the draft.
AB, I think the only major issue folks have with Dawson is his age. I looked at his career stats yesterday after he signed, and I have NO issue with his performance to date. Not only is he a top 3 all time kicker, he did it for 14 years in CLEVELAND of all places. The 'Stick is windy? Phil laughs and points to "The Mistake by the Lake".
His age is the only concern for sure. Akers worked out for us for 2011, if it wasn't for the injury, I am sure Akers would of worked for us in 2012, and may be here still. Akers was money in 2011. It sucked so see him miss so many kicks.
Edit: I think blame goes all around, Akers needs to tell them I cant go, and 49ers need to realize Akers is not in game shape. Also I think idiot fans who threatened him was a big no no. Yeah I yelled, never threaten the dude.
